The O’Malley lab at Oregon State University (OSU) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher (Post Doc) in Population Genomics. The Post Doc will hold a leadership role among a larger research team evaluating the population structure of Albacore tuna (Thunnus alalunga).
This research is funded by the Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Program and will be conducted in collaboration with NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC).
The primary responsibilities for this position include coordinating with the SWFSC to obtain previously collected tissue samples, working with OSU’s Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing (CGRB) to direct the next generation sequencing library preparation, performing data analyses using the CGRB’s computational infrastructure, and synthesizing the results in a peer-reviewed manuscript.
The Post Doc will be a member of OSU’ Department of Fisheries and Wildlife and the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station.
Ph.D. in genetics, ecology, or evolution with an emphasis in statistics.
